AUSTIN, Texas – Canadian singer-songwriter-songwriters will be at the centre of a musical comedy festival in Austin in the United States on May 26, according to the festival organizers.
The festival will take place at the Austin International Film Festival, which opened in 2017.
It will showcase a wide variety of Canadian talent, including popular songs like “The Queen Is Dead,” which was co-written by The Chainsmokers, and the “Love and Loss of the Father,” a collaboration between the Chainsmoker and singer-producer Chris Brown.
The festival has also partnered with the Austin Downtown Arts Alliance to create a stage show featuring local artists and filmmakers, with the goal of “creating a dynamic, entertaining, and creative environment to connect and engage audiences with emerging Canadian artists.”
The festival is being held at the American Express Center and will feature performances by local and international acts including the Chainsmiths, Bodega Bamz, K.E.B. and The Black Keys.
Tickets for the festival go on sale to the public on Friday, June 15, at 10 a.m. local time.
